Thiruvananthapuram Medical College Ward, under the City Corporation, can proudly boast of being fully sterilised with respect to the dog population. In a statement by the city ministers - Mr Manjalamkuzhy Ali and Mr. VS Sivakumar, by the end of the month, the stray dog sterilisation drive will complete 60 days.
The drive was held in collaboration with the Urban Affairs Department, Sathya Sai Orphanage Trust and Animal Husbandry department and out of the 310 dogs caught, 250 of them have been sterilised. A survey was also carried out by the trust to judge the total number of dogs in the ward that would have to be sterilised and a detailed plan was chalked out to carry out the process. The Executive director of Sathya Sai Orphanage Trust, Mr K N Anandakumar is very happy with the outcome and has proudly declared that for the first time ever a corporation ward in the state will be declared 100% sterilised regarding the stray dog population.
Just like Thiruvananthapuram, Nashik,
Chandigarh and Indore too have adopted Animal Birth Control measures to carry out effective sterilisation and vaccination of the stray dogs in their respective cities. We hope more Municipal Corporation will take inspiration from this initiative and work towards making the wards in their respective cities sterilised.
